The Editors’ Quote of the Day:

“In the second article, it is declared, that a well regulated militia is necessary to a free state; a proposition from which few will dissent. Although in actual war, in the services of regular troops are confessedly more valuable; yet while peace prevails, and in the commencement of a war before a regular force can be raised, the militia form the palladium of the country. They are ready to repel invasion, to suppress insurrection, and preserve the good order and peace of government. That they should be well regulated, is judiciously added. A disorderly militia is disgraceful to itself, and dangerous not to the enemy, but to its own country. The duty of the state government is, to adopt such regulation as will tend to make good soldiers with the least interruptions of the ordinary and useful occupations of civil life. In this all the Union has a strong and visible interest.” – William Rawle, “A View of the Constitution of the United States of America [1]”  (1829)

In those 22-23 states which have an operational State Guard or Self Defense Force (in California its called the California Military Reserve) we have the modern day expression of the militia. If you live in one of those states, I strongly encourage you to visit your State Guard unit at monthly drill and consider joining. You’ll find lots of like minded folks who are willing to volunteer to serve their state.
If you don’t live in one of those states, I encourage you to write a note to you state legislator, recommending activation of a State Guard to provide the cadre for expansion of the militia in a disaster.

In some areas of the redoubt there are abortionists and their clinics.
There are those who say they know krav-maga, Brazilian ju-jitsu, knife fighting and tactical training to “protect the innocent”.
Yet the let a dozen or more innocent die every day.

A well cuckolded militia will just be nice and unless something drastic happens will be on the side of the police, and feds, and would have even murdered LeVoy Finnicum if ordered to since that is part of being nice. It is not part of being righteous.

Author doesn’t understand the term “well regulated” as used. It means well equipped,as in gear,weapons,supplies and training.
